May not be what you have in mind but end of this month I am having a backhoe dropped at the lease to do a bunch of road work. If I don't do it soon season will be here before I know it.

Everything, and by everything I mean everything!! Lol. I moved an entire lease setup to another lease with blinds, feeders, feed and still have a camper to move! Bone Thug here on tbh helped me and we worked for a straight up 11-12 hours! It’s all part of it though. Makes all the sweat equity worth it when you can sit back and just throw the feed to them.

I still have to tweak a feeder setup on one spot and maybe fine tune it. Add some windows and a door to another blind but all that is minuscule compared to getting feeders moved and feeding!

Shred, disk, clean up roads, spray mesquite/huisache and whatever ever else I can come up with. I also cut firewood to make sure I have plenty for the season. Clean fence lines, keep feeders filled, protein, cottenseed and corn.

We started spring weed spraying around feeders & blinds to keep tall issues from occurring

Also need to empty old corn feeders & WD-40 spray the spinner plates on timers to keep the corrosion down

shredding, filling feeders, tree trimming, brush clearing, fixing and maintaining roads, fixing and maintaining fences, etc. All things that go along with maintaining and owning a piece of property to keep it nice.

On the other side of things, I go into overdrive with shooting my bow until hunting season starts, shooting all my rifles I hunt with, staying physically fit, trying out new gear, online scouting, hunt planning for the following years hunts. Hunting is almost a full time second job.

I don’t mind all of the work. It keeps me young and my lease is close by so I normally go 2 times a week during off season. Public is nice I guess but I don’t like having 18000 fellow lease members that I don’t know with loaded weapons chomping at the bits to shoot something.

We have a spring close to camp that I plan on building a spring box and use a ram pump to provide fresh water and not have to haul water in. I need to widen roads and use a box blade to smooth them out.

Agree. I don't mind the work and when I jump on the tractor and shred for several hours at a time, i really enjoy it and know that it is beneficial to the wildlife and help keep a clean property.

Ditto to that. As a city-dwelling desk jockey I greatly value any chance to stomp around in the woods and work on stuff.

With this lack of rain, we are spending a small fortune on supplemental feeding! Headed down this weekend to replace some stand and fill feeders I modified to make 'em more coon proof. Got clearance from landowner to allow us to trap coons, so some will die this weekend!! Polishing up my Duke's DP coon cuffs... taking more fence building materials down to put up a cattle excluder pen around a new set up... Any pigs sighted will be dispatched if possible.
Yea, I'm not a public land person either... been there, done that, no thank you! Have no desire to run into Jack Q Public in the woods...

So far this offseason we’ve:

-Built new protein pen and added new protein feeder and cottonseed hoops to it.
-Filled protein, cottonseed, and corn multiple times.
-Built a new blind to replace an old one. Relocated that complete set for better field of view.
-Replaced camp grill and bbq pit.
-Defrosted and cleaned out camp deep freezer.
-Repaired a couple blinds. Still have a couple more to do.
-Killed pigs.
-Trapped coons. Acquired a bunch more traps to help here.
-Updated deer log for the year.
-Trimmed roads. Still have more trimming to do.
-Scouted a couple areas for new tripod sets.

Trying to get most of the field stuff done before it gets hot. Much more fun knocking that stuff out in March than in July

Currently I’m doing some testing for trail camera inventory. Have 9 cameras we pulled out of the rotation that did funky stuff at various points of the year so trying to figure out which of those is worth keeping/fixing and which ones are junk.

Ordered and got a new string put on my bow. Working on getting that all shot in and tuned up now. Shops are dead right now so the whole process has been a breeze.

Doing bow bullet inventory and replacing things as needed. Been buying broadheads like it’s my job

Keeping an eye out for clothing or gear deals for upgrades.

same aa the rest of you except I need to burn one long brush pile, wind direction pending, and build a couple strategically placed permanent stands. That depends on wood prices staying the same or dropping. If not, I'll be in hang-up stands.
And tuning / more practice with the new bow.

Have fun guys!

Fix fences from bailouts, run water pump to maintain levels in ponds & tanks, fill feeders, shoot hogs, rinse & repeat almost weekly! I wish I could add shredding to this list but when it doesn't rain nothing to shred or mow.

With a new ranch this year the list is endless. So far this offseason we have done:
  • Build Cabin - this has taken 99% of our time, once it is done we will get to focus more on hunting related items but it is a slow process
  • Built 2 feed pens for protein
  • Built a couple of pens and moved corn feeders around due to cows
  • Fill feeders and keep running
  • Killed a few pigs

Still to do:
  • Finish cabin
  • Rebuild a couple of blinds
  • Fix a few feeders
  • Build another protein feed pen or 2 and get feeders out
  • Work on roads
  • Get after coons
  • Get after predators - snares, hunting, etc.
  • Stay after pigs
  • Explore the new ranch away from where the roads are, etc.
  • Tractor work - shredding, disking, food plots, etc
  • Depending on if we get more land, move some blinds and/or set up new locations
  • Clear around our thingamajig. We have a structure that we don't have a clue what it is but it is cool. I want to clear around it to get a better look and make it look better overall. Then maybe I can take pics and try to figure out what the hell it is.

I know we won't get to all of it this year and the list will continue to grow but we will try. The goal every year is to make the place better than it was the year before.

Slick, you won't run into me unless I allow you to. Where I hunt, most years I don't even see another hunter, and when I do, I already know him. You've been hunting the wrong areas, you have to go way back and off the beaten trail.

A lot our public is on land owned by timber companies. Where I had great success last season could become a clear cut any time now. Have to stay on top of cutting activity. Last years lovely strip cuts will grow into a mess in the summer unless you keep it clear. I also hunt national forest which don require as much attention

We were up this weekend and knocked out the majority of our offseason work while it was relatively not hot.

Camp clean up - I have OCD when it comes to being clean
Bathhouse plumbing - Had a couple of small leaks from freeze, all fixed up now
Feeders and stand moved and filled up, timers adjusted for offseason
Firewood cut - probably have close to a couple of cords stacked up now

Now I need to find a good, quiet, high volume positive pressure pump for the camp. We have one that works, but it can’t keep up with flow from a low flow shower head.

Yep or hunt where no one ever attempts to hunt. There is also the right next to the road overlooked areas. I never have a problem with people but I also have a bunch of spots to choose from if I think someone is near where I want to hunt

Yes, that is where I hunt, National Forest. For decades in Sam Houston and the last few years, Sabine National Forest. Heck, I hunt within 200 yds of the Sabine river bed on Toledo Bend. I've dragged bucks on a 2 wheeler up to 4 miles to get away from the city bound hunters at Sam.

There’s some big deer to be had in the NF for sure. Ive seen a few come out that would be trophies in anyones book. The trouble with “ you gotta get way back and off the beaten trail” is I’ve heard the same thing for years from 100s of folks. Seems to me that the “ backwoods” should be covered up with hunters too.

There’s some big deer to be had in the NF for sure. Ive seen a few come out that would be trophies in anyones book. The trouble with “ you gotta get way back and off the beaten trail” is I’ve heard the same thing for years from 100s of folks. Seems to me that the “ backwoods” should be covered up with hunters too.[/quote]

You are right, in a way, but way too many people are too lazy to make it to the 'backwoods".
